Beautiful Weather For Annual Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt

NEW HAVEN, Mo. - Saturday afternoon the New Haven Lions Club Annual Easter Egg Hunt could not have asked for better weather.  Moms and dads, many of whom can probably remember hunting during their childhood years, were now watching their kids racing to gather as many eggs with hopes of finding the “silver” egg.

What makes New Haven’s Easter egg hunt so unique is the fact that the same two Lions Club members, Mark Zobrist and Tom Lagemann, have been in charge of organizing the event for over the past 30 years.  How many years exactly?  Well, that is a good question because neither Lagemann or Zobrist are 100 percent sure.

Nixon Says Senate Bill 509 Would Drain $620 Million From Public Schools

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Gov. Jay Nixon today issued the following statement regarding data requested by the Missouri School Boards Association showing the impact Senate Bill 509 would have on local school districts across the state.

“These new numbers show that if the legislature succeeds in punching a $620 million hole in our state budget with this unaffordable giveaway to special interests, it’s our students and schools who will pay the price,” Gov. Nixon said. “Senate Bill 509 would drain hundreds of millions of dollars annually out of our K-12 schools -- weakening our economy, undermining our stable business climate, and putting full funding of the foundation formula out of reach. Missourians want good schools and good jobs, not another dangerous scheme to defund our K-12 classrooms.”
